The allegedly missing Bauchi State-owned aircraft, has landed in Nigeria from Morocco where the state government claimed it was found.

The Embraer ERJ 145 touched down on the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport Bauchi at about 10 am Friday.

Its whereabouts had been a subject of controversy as the new government suggested the aircraft was stolen by its predecessor and hidden in Morocco.

In an address two weeks ago, Governor Mohammed Abubakar announced the airplane had been found in the north African country.
Mr. Abubakar said the state’s public Property Recovery Committee traced the plane.

“I wish to announce the fruitful efforts in locating the state owned “Embraer 145 aircraft in Morocco and soon it will land at the Abubakar Tafawa-Balewa international Airport in a matter of days,” the governor said.

He said the plane would be returned to Nigeria within days.

In response, former Governor Isa Yuguda told journalists the plane was on lease to Overland Airways.

Mr. Yuguda said he had provided full details about the plane, which was bought by former Governor Adamu Mu’azu, in his handover notes.

He said the new administration did not require any assets recovery committee to know what happened to the aircraft.

The state deputy governor, Nuhu Gidado, who acknowledged the arrival of the aircraft, told journalists that, “we have been longing to see our aircraft is back and we are glad that the aircraft is back we will be meeting with the crew to see what next and how to move forward”.

Okon Lagos and Frank Ufomadu disagree over arrest of Bayelsa kidnapper, John Lyon

By

Okon Lagos, the Nollywood actor, and Frank Ufomadu, the filmmaker, have clashed over the arrest of John ‘Lyon’ Ewa, the alleged kidnapper who operates in Bayelsa.

Lyon was said to have been arrested on Saturday in the federal capital territory (FCT) by officers of the Bayelsa police command.

Until his arrest, the socialite was popular for flaunting luxurious items and posting motivational quotes about success.

The dispute over his arrest started when Paul Okoye lamented the obsession some ladies have towards wealth even without knowing its source.

In an Instagram post, Okoye wondered if any of the ladies seen with Lyon in viral videos ever questioned his occupation or source of money.

Weighing into the conversation, Okon Lagos supported Okoye’s viewpoint.

The comedian said women who hang around people with questionable wealth are “enablers and should be given equal treatment with the actual culprit”.

But reacting to the post, Ufomadu argued that the actor and singer have “no moral justification” for calling out any lady dating “criminals” for not questioning their source of income.

The filmmaker asked the pair if they ever made any attempt to probe the wealthy individuals who pay N5 million or more just to attend their shows.

Ufomadu added that some shows by comedians and singers are usually graced by “corrupt politicians and drug pushers”.

He also tackled the actor for deleting his comment.

But Okon Lagos fired back, saying Ufomadu is not “worth the trouble”.

He also berated him for “giving lame justifications for aiding, abetting and enabling crime”.

If I get married and my husband cheats, I’ll not leave the union. I’ll forgive him and we iron things out. Even married women cheat too.”
